Over 60 years


In 1951 Lawrence and Vera Walker purchased a plot of land just outside Blaxton, Doncaster. This land had never before been ploughed, but with two years' hard work they had enough crops to sell. As well as passing trade Lawrence would ride his motorbike with a sidecar full of produce to Doncaster market to set up his stall, and so Walkers Nurseries was born.

Walkers Roses


Back in 1951, we were called Walker's Roses, and today's show gardens are where the roses were once grown on site. We exhibited our produce at flower shows around Britain, winning many awards.

Today, we are very proud of our stimulating and inventive display of plants which we hope will prompt you to browse, and to foster an interest in gardening, whether as an amatuer or at advanced level.

We are open

We are excited to announce that Walker’s Nurseries has now reopened. Following the Government guidelines to allow us to reopen safely, things will be a little different. Only a limited number of customers are allowed inside, so please be patient as there may be a queue to enter. There is a maximum of 2 people allowed from the same household to shop together, and we have a one way system to limit dwelling and keep movement through the store.

We have increased cleaning and disinfectant measures and are saying no dogs allowed, except assistance dogs, during this time.

Our Garden Centre, Food To Go and Show Gardens are now open, whilst The Potting Shed and The Garden Restaurant will be remaining closed until further notice.

We appreciate your co-operation and look forward to seeing you.
